Strain-Level Identification of Bacterial Tomato Pathogens Directly from Metagenomic Sequences.


group 2. This result was confirmed by whole genome sequencing of colonies isolated from one of the samples. Although in our case metagenome-based pathogen identification at the strain level was achieved, caution still must be exercised in interpreting strain-level results because of the challenges inherent to assigning reads to specific strains and the error rate of nanopore sequencing.
